Salad with Berries, Grilled Lemon Chicken, Feta and Homemade Poppy Seed Dressing

Today was like Christmas for me! I opened my terrace door and walked intently on a temperature that was most undoubtedly dead acceptable for grilling. Yes, grilling season has arrived and that I couldn’t be additionally prepared for it! I like the flavour of grilled chicken. I love the feeling of essentially cooked something for that matter. It's a flavour that can’t be imitated from baking or pan searing. I did dialogue with this formula whether or not to try to a baked crisp panko crusty lemon chicken or a grilled lemon chicken. I’m glad I went with a cooked version. It's excellent with this dish and cookery the chicken may be a good and easy flavour foil.

I conjointly set to add one among my latest favourites in cheese, Feta. It pairs astonishingly well with the tartness of the blackberries and sweetness of the strawberries, and it enhances the slight tang of the lemon chicken. I conjointly thought a dish this delicious wouldn’t do with a store bought dressing. Thus I created a straightforward do-it-yourself version. It's improbably simple, and if you wish to shave off the step of grating the onion, you'll merely replace it with a 1/4 – 1/2 tsp of onion powder. Enjoy!
